For those that would like to play the entire playlist through Spotify please click here. The hardwork of creating a playlist has been done for you.

Enjoy the tunes.  know that not all of them appeal greatly to me, but I quizzed about 30 kids for their favourite tracks to help compile the list. The result is hopefully something for everyone.

Disclaimer – to my husband and his sisters. I was not on your European vacation with one tape (Billy Joel) so I am not required to include him in my playlist. I appreciate you will all be raging mad that he is not in there but I have nothing, just I am sorry.
